The factory workshops produce safety-related components which are integrated into large projects such as high-speed lines, metros, trams, private lines like Eurotunnel, but also for small tourist trains.

Among all its projects, we can mention the tramways of Bordeaux, Grenoble, Toulouse, but also those of Nottingham. The subways of Paris, of course, but also those of Santiago de Chile, Riyadh, Montreal…

All products are entirely manufactured in our Ars sur Moselle site, according to precise quality criteria.
